11:55 am
drivers are not going to stand for that we provide a service those guys don't they pick and choose their riders they get the up the scale riders and the relationship is basically, it's political it is between a parasite and host and leaves us there to do the rest you can't let this happen you have to get involved to a much greater stent than you have and if not, we're lost and if we're lost where are you thank you >> (calling names) good afternoon, sir. >> thank you director reiskin i agree with the remarks of the previous taxi speakers it's mind blolg what the airport is doing
